COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The D.L. Geary Brewing Co., Inc. is celebrating 25 years in business by releasing a “Silver Series – Master Brewer’s Selection”. The brews will be created and brewed by Geary’s long time brew masters and will be available quarterly, exclusively on draught. The brews will each be named after the master brewer that created them. The first release, COOLEDGE Oatmeal Stout, will be released during the week of January 31, 2011. This fine selection is brewed by Sean P. Cooledge, a brewer at Geary’s for over 17 years. This oatmeal stout includes oatmeal in the grist, resulting in a pleasant, full flavor and a smooth profile that is rich without being grainy. The color is dark brown and the roasted malt character is caramel and chocolate-like — smooth and not bitter. Coffee, chocolate and nut aromas are prominent.

hockeybeerguy (1509) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - FEB 4, 2013
It poured a very dark mahogany color with a lumpy creamy light tan two inch head. The head lasted about a good two minutes. There was quite a bit of foamy lacing as the beer went down. The body was pitch black. The smell was mostly malty with some notes of chocolate and coffee. The taste is the same as the smell with the coffee and the chocolate. However, it seems the chocolate is a bit more subdued. The palate is medium with a moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a good stout that I would probably have again.

Bottle. This is nice simple stout with a little bit going on in the background.

kramer (4860) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a one inch frothy brown head that slowly faded. The nose is pretty nice, a mix of sweet milk chocolate and caramel with a light roasted malt background. The flavor is fairly roasty with some burnt caramel and light hazelnut like finish. There’s a slight influence from the oatmeal, adding a touch of sweetness and a little smoothness to the body. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent Sweet Stout.

Berard (268) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Draft. Pours black with creme colored head that lingers. No visible carbonation with chocolate aroma. Bitter chocolate and coffee flavors with oatmeal richness. Delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TOSG55 (219) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle (I guess "available exclusively on draught" was meant loosely...). Pours a very dark brown with a light head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, and chocolate. The flavor has similar notes, with an interesting touch of fruit on the finish, and a hint of coffee. Mouthfeel is a little bit thin. Nothing exciting, but a nice oatmeal stout.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - APR 23, 2012
(Bottle from Tully’s) Very dark cola brown with three solid fingers of tan head. Aroma of chocolate. Mouthfeel is smooth but with some detracting prickliness and wateriness. Flavor of dark and milk chocolate with hints of coffee and roast.

beerfest5 (1130) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 4, 2012
On draft at Flynn’s. Poured a milky black with a tan head into the tulip glass. Aroma is of bready black malts with a nice roasted nut background. Delicious and so easy, so smooth.

On Draft @ the Great Lost Bear. Pours dark brown to black with huge, frothy white head. Produced lots of lacing down the glass. The aroma is strong coffee with some light bitter chocolate. The flavor is more of the same with coffee, chocolate a good amount of roasted malts. You also get the oatmeal taste which gives it a thicker, smooth mouthfeel. I have a good feeling this is one of Geary’s better brews.
